What do you think about the current influence of China in the world?

China's rise has been a force for good. The return of China to the world scene after 1978 is one of the most significant events in world politics since the end of World War II. Since reform and opening-up began in the late 1970s, China's success in lifting over 700 million people out of poverty has been one of the greatest policy achievements of the past 50 years. Both developed and developing countries alike can draw from China's model of development, which has seen China move from a marginal player in global trade to the world's second-largest economy in the span of less than four decades by emphasizing structural reforms, infrastructure investment, political cohesion, inclusive development, and policy pragmatism.

China has demonstrated that its influence is through a sense of shared global responsibility and a desire to play a greater global role. This has translated into a willingness to take a prominent leadership role in championing economic globalization in opposition to calls for protectionism from voices in the West.
